At quarter 1 of 2011-12, there were 66 acute service national health service trusts forecasting an aggregate surplus between them, of £159 million.

At quarter 1 of 2011-12, there were six acute service NHS trusts forecasting an aggregate operating deficit of £170 million. These were South London Healthcare NHS Trust (£65 million), Barking, Havering and Redbridge Hospitals NHS Trust (£40 million), Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (£30 million), Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust (£19 million), North West London Hospitals NHS Trust (£10 million) and Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust (£6 million).

This means that acute service NHS trusts were forecasting a net aggregate operating deficit of £11 million.

The Department is ensuring that the organisations forecasting a deficit have plans in place for financial recovery, while continuing to improve the quality of services to patients.

The breakdown of the forecast surplus for all the acute service NHS trusts is shown in the following table:
